We really enjoyed this luau! The price was fair, the ranch was beautiful, the proximity to our hotel was great, the food was good, open bar was an awesome surprise, and the show was very entertaining and beautiful. They obviously know what they're doing and...More

We did the extra package and ate at Gaylord’s which was very good but not really the type of luau food/atmosphere we were looking for. Would not recommend that restaurant for families with small children. The show was terrific, very professionally done. You could see...More

We were disappointed in the fact we enjoy the dancing; this luau was more of a theatrical performance with little dancing of the islands. Fire dancing was good. We would not go again, too many people, very crowded and loud, and everything is in doors....More

The food was great traditional Hawaiian cuisine and the show was impressive with a great storyline. The vendors that were selling items outside was a nice touch.

I’ve seen a lot of luau shows, but the way these artists combined tradition with modern dance elements was very unique. It honors the past without patronizing the Hawaiian people by pretending their art is frozen in time. It definitely shows the islands are alive...More

We did not find the entertainment to be really loud and we sat in the front row next to the stage. There were lots of young children present who appeared to enjoy the show. I believe the show was over by 9pm.
